What Have I Been UP To?--and Prayer Update For Ken's Family

What have I been
UP to?
I risked life and limb to take
that picture for you!

So WHAT have I been up to?
I have been UPto the UP.
Don't know what that is?
UP is short for the
UPPER PENINSULA 
of Michigan.

I am just popping in to tell you
I will be back Wednesday sometime
with a regular blog post.

Tomorrow morning  my son and I are
leaving at 4am driving
to Illinois to pay our
respects to Ken's family as everyone
says their final Earthly goodbyes to Ken.
.Thank you so much- all of you
for your prayers and support
here for Lisa and her children.

Here is what Lisa wrote
after reading the comments you left:
Lisa Mangold has left a new comment on your post 
"Prayers Of A Different Kind Desperately Needed": 

The past two days have been very difficult but God put many people in our lives today to help us through. I see now that God put it on the hearts of many to pray for us as well. As the day continued I felt more peace and now I know why. Thank you to all who left comments here. And thank you Diana for thinking of us today. It really made a difference!

Blessings,
Lisa 

I am going to try to pop around 
and catch up a bit tonight.
Have a wonderful evening

  9. You are a very special friend, Diana. I see just as many prayer posts on your blog as I do décor and table settings. The pretty pictures are always so much fun, but clearly your call for prayer has made such a difference in the lives of many, most recently Lisa. I will continue to pray for her and her family and for you and your son on your trip.
